Description  

Printed proclamation, not signed by the King, one page, 12.25 x 15, dated June 27, 1814, signed at the conclusion by sheriffs Benjamin Bickley and Philip George. Document reads, in part: “Whereas a Definitive Treaty of Peace and Friendship between His Majesty and His Most Christian Majesty, hath been concluded at Paris, on the Thirtieth Day of May last…We do declare to all His Majesty's loving Subjects Our Will and Pleasure, that the said Treaty of Peace and Friendship be observed inviolably, as well by Sea as Land." Document also bears George’s printed name, “George P. R.,” above the beginning of the text. Document has been professionally linen-backed. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, and scattered toning, staining, and foxing, as well as a few spots of minor paper loss along central vertical fold and edges. The 1814 Treaty of Paris, signed on May 30, 1814, ended the war between France and the Sixth Coalition, and also enforced the abdication of Napoleon I, who was exiled to Elba. RR Auction COA.
